    I am trying to format a 4gb USb flash drive and I just can't seem to figure out how. I saw some people say you have to empty the trash while the drive is plugged in, but that doesn't seem to work either.

    Any help would be great,

    Thanks,

    You do this in Disk Utility, which is located in the Utilities folder. You can use Go->Utilities from the Finder to get there.
